Portraits: Attempts of Total Lucidity
Video and ceramics installation.
Inspired by my stop motion work, I developed this installation with a series of sculptures (portraits) and a video.
It was a short research playing with time and space into sculpture.
Conceptually, this installation is based on the idea of enlightenment. The conscious state where we have the ability to know and perceive everything in one second. One of the foundations of this knowledge is the non-linear perception of time, where time and matter are part of the same coin. The past is part of an infinite present moment and, in that sense, we can understand that the experiences/memories of our past, even that of our ancestors, are active in our present.
'Portraits' is a selection of attempts made in sculpture to capture all perspectives at once.
First attempt: Tree from a Window. Video 5 min.
